Anna van der Breggen made it a remarkable six consecutive wins at La Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday. The newly crowned world champion led from the bottom of the climb of the Mur de Huy and held off a strong challenge from Dutch compatriot Demi Vollering (Parkhotel-Valkenburg).

Vollering attacked just after the famous bend on the steepest section of the climb, but could not gap Van der Breggen. Danish rider Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope) also tried but was unable to respond when the world champion opened her sprint, eventually finishing second, with Vollering third.
